You can constantly guarantee that this hotel never disappoints.We went the first two weeks in December and the weather was excellent. Constant sunshine with temperatures of 17-18c and no rain.
The Riu Monica has always had a good reputation for its food,the quality and variety will take some beating. The staff are always friendly and pleasant at whatever level with reception going out of their way to assist with any enquiry you may have. The bedrooms and public areas are spotlessly clean, albeit the beds are on the hard side (small tip , it helps if you request to have a blanket placed on top of the mattress). No tea making facilities in room so best take travel kettle. Rooms with even numbers get afternoon sun. I think the price of the safe hire for two weeks at 31 euros was a little excessive. Other than that could highly recommend this hotel. We have booked yet again for next year.
There are several bars and restaurants accross the road offering beers from 2 e a pint and brandy at 2.5 e. Sancks reasonably priced also. We did however find another bar called BAR RAFAEL which has sun all day. It is situated on the opposite side of the road as you turn right out of the Monica on c/Chaparil, Almirante Carraura17b. Opens 10am to late and offers a free tapas with drink purchased. Really nice couple who own it. There is however a huge choice of pleasant bars, cafes, restaurants nearby and in Nerja town. One day we had lunch in La Forja one of the restaurants opposite the hotel and it was just awfull. Terrible service and even worse food.!.
To conclude great hotel and Nerja a great place to visit the latter being quiet at this time of year.
